Our mission is to lead people into an authentic, life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. We are a place where you can make life-changing relationships and find your purpose in life. We have dynamic worship, inspirational messages and children love our fantastic programs designed just for them. We′re a relaxed church and we′re passionate about living our lives for God.

We are wired for relationship— with God and with other Christ-followers— and it is through meaningful relationships that we grow. We want everyone in the church to be connected to others and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Being devoted to Jesus is a life-long journey and we are committed to helping people along the way. Devotion to Jesus comes through devotion to the Bible, which is his Word.
